#BrewDiet Day 1 Recap

Well that was pretty easy. This is going to be a piece of cake!1

Today was rather busy. I had to fill in for a talk Jeff Moriarty was supposed to give. But he needed a vacation. From not having a job. Whatever. Then my physician decided I needed to come drink his beer and eat reindeer sausage at his house. Fine, I'll do it. And finally, there was the sneaking in of my dinner beer to the theater. Which I didn't drink because I was watching Contagion. Sorta spoiled my appetite. And desire to touch anyone. Or anything. Ever.

But yes, a good day. On to the digits:

According to MyFitnessPal, that was just under 1600 calories, which is about 100 shy of my goal. Great! I'll bank it for tomorrow when I'm meeting beer judge and home brewer Thomas Vincent and his new bride Kris up in Sedona. Rumor has it there are presents. For me!

And don't forget, you can follow along with my beer drinking as-it-happens the entire #BrewDiet month on Twitter and Facebook. And yes, you can support my cause by sending me the two things I need this month. Sausage and craft beer!

  1. Day 1 went well for me as well. I learned the valuable lesson that leaner sausage (mine was turkey & chicken) is a bad idea for the morning meat. I need the staying power only pork fat can deliver!

    Beer-wise, my plan is to lay down a substrate of Stone IPA, then stud that with a daily featured beer that is unique in my beer-drinking experience. I tend to be a creature of habit, so I like this opportunity to force myself to explore.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Good to hear it's started off with a bang, Charlie! Today (Monday) is the first day at work for both of us. I'm curious how we do!
